IssueResult of C_GetMechanismInfo
C_GetMechanismInfo returns only CKF_HW in the flags
CauseThis function call is used to obtain information about the particular mechanism. In the set of flags, due to a minor cosmetic bug, only CKF_HW is returned.
ResolutionThe correct list which should be returned is as follows:

        CKF_HW
        CKF_ENCRYPT
        CKF_DECRYPT
        CKF_SIGN
        CKF_VERIFY

However, note that C_Encrypt is a sub-function in RSA SecurID Passage, and that just because a mechanism may support some functionality does not mean it will be available to you. See the solution titled PKCS#11 functionality in RSA SecurID Passage 3.4 Client for more information regarding PKCS#11 function availability.
